BTS’ oldest member, Jin, has recently celebrated his birthday which is on December 4th, 1992. Jin, 29 years old this year, is supposed to enlist for mandatory military service this year, but since he and the rest of the BTS members have applied for a deferment, he can postpone it for a year.
On his birthday, Jin, whose birth name is Kim Seokjin, tuned in a live stream through V LIVE to celebrate the day with ARMY, BTS’ fans. On the live stream, he talked about his birthday project prepared by ARMY on the last day of a concert at SoFi Stadium, Los Angeles, and said that he was so grateful and touched by it.
He also announced that he had a new song titled Super Tuna, and he would release it at 8:30 PM KST. Jin revealed that he made the song for fun. At first, Jin was a bit embarrassed by the Super Tuna, but many people listened to it and liked it.
Jin worked together with BUMZU for Super Tuna. BUMZU, last year, had worked with Jin for Abyss. The two songs have a completely different vibe. BTS’ company even asked Jin if the songs were made by the same person, because of the contrasts.
Super Tuna is now available on the BANGTANTV YouTube channel. You can listen to the song here.
The surprise isn’t over yet! Jin has also made a choreography video for Super Tuna. ARMY has found the choreography video and tried to trend it as a Super Tuna challenge. Watch the special performance video here.
